New green rum uses honey from local bees in Manchester
New Manchester rum brand Decorrum uses homegrown honey from Manchester Printworks’ very own bees to support the local bee population.
The Art Deco-inspired rum was born out of a lockdown project by Didsbury-based founder Lucy Wolfenden, 27, who saw a gap in the market for a more feminine, elegant rum.
Decorrum is made with organically sourced, natural ingredients and contains no artificial flavourings. Up to £1 of every purchase will go to Forever Manchester, a charity supporting community projects in and around the city.
To help protect the local bee population in Manchester, with every bottle purchased, Decorrum will adopt a Manchester Worker Bee located in a sanctuary on top of the iconic Printworks building in the City Centre.
At 37.5% ABV, Decorrum is available for RRP £29.99 from Haus of Drunks, Crafty Connoisseur and The Rum Company in Manchester.
Recommended cocktails include ‘The Show Case’ cocktail – pair with fiery ginger beer, fresh mint, lime and white sugar for a tangy celebration drink. Drinkers can also serve this Caribbean distilled rum alongside cola and fresh lime, for a refreshing tipple.
Decorrum’s blend of spices and ingredients include vanilla, homegrown honeycomb, rhubarb, cinnamon clove, orange peel, and a hint of ginger.
From a honey-infused rum to a chocolate-inspired gin; York Gin distillery has relaunched its Chocolate and Orange Gin, inspired by the classic stocking filler Terry’s Chocolate Orange.
